A Boy I Once Knew: What a Teacher Learned from her Student

A Boy I Once Knew: What a Teacher Learned from her Student by Elizabeth StoneOne morning, a box was delivered to Elizabeth Stone's door. It held ten years of personal diaries and a letter that began "Dear Elizabeth, You must be wondering why I left you my diaries in my will. After all, we have not seen each other in over twenty years . . ."

What followed was a remarkable year in Elizabeth's life as she read Vincent's diaries and began to learn about the high school student she had taught twenty-five years before. A Boy I Once Knew is the story of the man that Vincent had become-and the efforts of his teacher to make some sense of his life.

With his diaries, Vincent becomes...

An Unexpected Finish Line Leaves a Unique Legacy: One Persons Short Journey Impacts the Journey of Many

An Unexpected Finish Line Leaves a Unique Legacy: One Persons Short Journey Impacts the Journey of Many by Dr. David C. Johnson"Engineering, at it's core, seeks to leverage a deeper understanding of God's physical creation for some useful purpose". Penned by Dr. Kenneth Johnson, those words reflect the unwavering commitment of a Renaissance man whose life was committed to serving Christ and bringing hope to those in need. Dr. Kenneth Johnson left significantly more than a tragedy behind him when he left this world in November 2013 at the age of 43. In the words of Dr. John C.

Antonio Caso, Philosopher of Mexico: Philosopher of Mexico

Antonio Caso, Philosopher of Mexico: Philosopher of Mexico by John H. HaddoxFew men have had as much cultural and educational influence on their own countries as the philosopher and educator Antonio Caso (1883-1946). He was above all a patriot of his beloved Mexico, and he sought to deliver his humanitarian message to his countrymen. In his youth, after the revolt against Díaz, he was a member of the Ateneo de la Juventud, a group that sought to bring Mexico, spiritually and economically, back to the Mexicans. Caso realized that this effort involved the forming of a national consciousness among his people, whom he saw divided by their private and public interests....

Charlotte Mason: Hidden Heritage and Educational Influence

Charlotte Mason: Hidden Heritage and Educational Influence by Margaret A. CoombsAs the acknowledged founder and philosopher of the Parents' National Educational Union (PNEU), Charlotte Mason (1842-1923) was revered by her followers as a saintly Madonna figure.
